OpenBSD 3.0 and 3.1 use pfctl -t like described in pfctl(8). OpenBSD 3.2
use set timeout like described in pf.conf(5). It's also possible to
define timeouts per rule.
You can also use some predefined optimized scenarios:
* normal
* high-latency
* aggressive
* conservative
OpenBSD 3.0 and 3.1 use pfctl -O.
OpenBSD 3.2 use set optimization.
As said, all this is clearly explained in the man pages.
